I am excited for ASW now! I'll be working in Chicago on Saturday, but I'm working with work to fly down early Friday to catch the events that day.

60K!
Email was at 4:46 chicago time today. Didn't post for so long because I'm an RA and we had to close the halls, so I just ran up and down them in excitement.

In all seriousness, I am thrilled. NU is my first choice and my lsat was not the greatest...

Congrats to everyone so far! And let's hope there's more tomorrow!

It doesn't have one. You get a discount at a local gym that makes it ~$200 a year.


How is the gym? Is it one that I can do some real lifting at (i.e. has squat racks and dumbbells up to 100 or 120 lbs, you know, legit free weight stuff), or am I gonna have to find another one?


100lbs dumbbell, you are a beast!


Well, I'm not there quite yet. I can only do 4-5 reps with 90lb dumbbells for db bench right now. Mostly working out with 85s currently. but i wanna have that room for improvement. I think if I keep at it I should be benching the 100s by end of summer. DBs are harder than barbell, but if u think about it, for benchpress, 200 isn't really that high.

U aware brah?

Haha, I will most likely be attending NU in the fall. Literally just got back from the gym where I did DB bench with 100s 3x12 (elbow problems so I can't lift heavy right now). Good to see there are some more bros headed to NU. I'm sure we'll find somewhere to lift!


Ain't nothin but a peanut!! Also glad to hear that there are potential workout partners, should this factor into my decision hah?


Hell yeah it should. Hey, we could even all live together and split bulk protein powder. truenutrition has whey for $6/lb if u buy over 15lbs. (remember the good ol days when $5/lb was standard?)


If you guys are worried about finding a gym where you can lift and are considering living in Streeterville, I have friends who are really big into bodybuilding/lifting and they do just fine at River East (about 3-4 blocks from school, and a 2 minute walk from Onterie/420 E Ohio/The Streeter/McClurg/etc). River East is the gym that offers a deal for NU students, and I think it's owned by LA Fitness? So membership covers any LA Fitness in the nation. IIRC it's about $180 for a year.

I heard there's a really great old-school lifting gym up in Lincoln Park or something, but I don't know the name. You should ask Boo for info on that one.

lol, haven't actually been on the bb.com forums in years. I'm just amused by the jokes that come out of there.

And while not ASL'ing, I am somewhat curious as to the general age range here. From what i've heard about NW, I feel like I'd be the youngest person around, unless there are some K-JDs.

I'm a K-JD and I'm going to ASW. I'll probably be one of the youngest people there.

Sorry breh but I bet more is coming. Maybe johann is planning on keeping the joke going and is going to offer you $17K in the form of 5k the first year, 7k the second year, and 5k the third year

Solid Rodney Coleman reference. You lax in college or just have great floetry? If so, I'd be down to toss the rock if we're in the Chi next year.

This is a misconception about NU. I'm among the oldest of my friends in my mid/late 20s. There are certainly older people, but you wont be at all out of place at 22-23. You really don't need to worry about all the old crones at NU trying to suck your youth away :)

Hey franklyscarlet! Are there 1BRs within walking distance of the law school? If so, do you know what they run?

Yes, there definitely are, but they're pricey. I don't have a definite # since most people I know are in studios, but a studio in close walking distance (about 3-5 minutes) runs a~$1200. Finding one won't be an issue, though.

Do you live in the area? Do you have feedback for people moving to Chicago for the first time.
It's a pretty touristy area for those that aren't from Chicago.

I live very close in one of the common buildings. I was moving sight unseen from rural Texas and its my first time in a big city, so it was a great decision and worth the money for me. It relieved a lot of 1L stress to be able to get hOme and back in 10 minutes if I forgot something or roll out of bed for class, and I got to explore the city at my own rather timid pace. Now that I know and love Chicago, I'll be moving to a neighborhood with more character and cheaper rent. It really depends on personal circumstances, I think, and what wirks for you. Streeterville is really not bad, but it is a little dull. I found that the CTA pass NU gives us made it easy to go to other neighborhoods, but you have to make an effort to get out.

eta: excuse my grammar and spelling, on my phone at the airport.

Guess my theory about decreasing scholly amounts was true. Just got my letter-- 30K. Nice of them to offer, and certainly better than nothing, but no way I could attend NU this way. Sad, because I really liked their joint JD/LLM program.. Oh well :(

He also got into NU so it was really among our top choices, especially since it would mean we'd get to be classmates (which would've been awesome since we met in college). He only got 30K too, so it looks like NU is off the table for sure.
